Rodgers Looks For First Away Win At Norwich

Rodgers Looks For First Away Win At Norwich

Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers says he's looking for side to pick up their first away win on Saturday at Norwich City.

The Swans had a poor away record last season, and that form has continued into the Premier League this year having lost all their games on their travels so far.

Rodgers sounds confident that his side can end that run of poor form when the Swans face the Canaries at Carrow Road on Saturday at 3pm:

'Getting an away win in the Premier League is tough and you need the confidence of getting points away from home, but we have players that have improved both tactically and mentally from last season,'

'We have started this season a little bit like last year - we have been formidable at home but we are yet to pick up any points on the road.

'Norwich will come into the game with a good home record, but I have great belief in the players that they can go to any arena and pick up points.

'They (Norwich) are hungry to do well, like us, but when we play well we normally pick up points. And the target is simple - to win the next game.'

'We did well in our last game against Stoke but this is another new challenge for us,' he said. 'They have quality players and they still have the core of the group that got them promoted.

'They have been a Premier League club before so it should be a really good game.

'We arrive there a better group this year but they have a good home record so it will be a tough game.'
